Welcome back to 31 Days to Building a Cleaning Routine!
Day 6 task: Simple Cleaning Supply List
I’ve been looking at a lot of blogs that give Homemade Cleaning Recipes for awhile now, and pinning them. I’m so excited to try my hand at making them and cleaning!!
Having some new really motivates me to use it, even if it is a cleaner.
I specifically searched for cleaning recipes that would use inexpensive items (or items I already had on hand) and would serve more than one purpose.
You probably already know you can use both baking soda and vinegar in many ways. But I was surprised at HOW useful those two items really are!
Here are just the first few:
- Make all purpose cleaners by pouring with equal parts into a spray bottle
- Clean dirt off your computer and mouse with a little vinegar and a q tip
- Clean your drains with vinegar and baking soda
- Wipe away mildew
- Clean and polish chrome and stainless steel
- Use as a fruit wash-rinses away germs
Again, just some of the uses:
44. Add a cup to the toilet, leave it for an hour, and then flush. It will clean the toilet and absorb the odor.
45. Use it to scrub sinks, showers, plastic and porcelain tubs
46. Spray it on walls, mirrors, and countertops.
47. Add a spoonful to your dishwasher to make scrubbing dishes easier.
48. Remove grease from pots and pans.
My Cleaning Supplies
Below are the cleaning supplies I’ve gathered. I may add a few more supplies, but this is what I’m mainly going to use:
- Super Washing Soda (Checkers) $2.71
- Borox (Walmart) $3.38
- Seventh Generation Dish Soap (Walmart) $2.97
- Fels Naptha Bar of Soap (Walmart) $0.97
I will be introducing the cleaning recipes I’ve used and loved starting next week. Although if you are impatient to get started, check out my 31 Days to Building a Cleaning Routine board.
Well, see you tomorrow!
